RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Heading into 2016 Randall appeared to be on the verge of establishing himself as a regular starter for the Packers, but injuries and ineffectiveness instead plagued him throughout the campaign, and he actually saw his role decrease. The Packers will give him a chance to turn things around this season, but he may open the season no better than the teamâ€™s fourth cornerback.
Randall, Green Bay's 2015 first-round selection, had a rock-solid inaugural campaign despite transitioning from safety to cornerback during his first season in the NFL. He led the Packers with 14 defended passes and tied for a team-high three interceptions, which doesn't include his theft from Carson Palmer in Green Bay's divisional round loss to the Cardinals. However, Randall also was to blame for Larry Fitzgerald's 75-yard catch that led to Arizona's game-winning touchdown. All in all, Randall's strengths reside in his unwavering confidence and ability to high-point any and all balls thrown his direction. Both overshadow any mental lapses he may have over the course of a contest, and are a big reason to expect Randall to continue along his sky-high career trajectory.
While Randall primarily played safety in college, the Packers have him listed at cornerback to open up training camp. His strength is in run support and he will likely be used in nickel and/or dime situations – if he does not win a starting job during camp. Randall’s versatile skill set could help solidify Green Bay’s defensive backfield in 2015.
